We'd love to host you in our peaceful, fully self-contained guest cottage at Lake Rotorua! This light & airy holiday house ('bach' in kiwi-speak) has everything you need including washing machine, full cooking facilities (stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge all utensils), all linen and free wifi (no cleaning or linen fee). It's less than 10 minutes into Rotorua and all the geo-thermal and other tourist attractions. Note: this neighbourhood does NOT have the famous Rotorua sulphur smell :)
Your wonderful new queen size bed (soft yet firm) looks out to Mount Ngongotaha from a fresh naturally-lit bedroom.
The living area is sunny and contains a sofa that could be reconfigured should you have an extra guest (3rd child or extra adult which allows for 5 guests total).
The bunkroom is compact but easily sleeps two children (but might be a little cramped for an adult over 6ft).
[We can provide an extra single mattress and linen for a $50/night additional charge]

We have recently moved to NZ after 12 years in the USA. Victoria is a kiwi (New Zealander) who has lived in Australia, England and the USA and has traveled widely so we love meeting people from all around the globe and sharing this amazing paradise where we have landed. Jamie is American and has also traveled a lot so we especially welcome fellow US travelers. Having 2 children ourselves, we are kid-friendly so the bunks have high-quality mattress protectors and a rail that can be added and yes you do see a swing set outside the bunkroom window. At present we don't have baby equipment but you are welcome to bring your own.
- Sorry no Saturday check-in
We live on the property, our main house is 20 metres from your guest cottage; so it's no problem if you forgot something or have a question.
The main house is lakeside so you can have access to our beach on beautiful Lake Rotorua.
Ask about pets - we're open to you bringing a special furry friend -contact us to check.
We are an AmeriKiwi couple who recently moved from Michigan, USA (where Jamie is from) to Victoria's homeland of New Zealand. We love to travel and meet other like-minded people so we'd love to host you in our self-contained guest cottage. We are loving living in this special corner of New Zealand with it's rich history and cultural experiences.
